Lovely design and a fitting addition to Manhattan's skyline, including the view from Central Park. I love superthins. So sleek and so futuristics--and a far cry from that scary, fat smoke stack that replaced the old and graceful WTC towers

That may not be the actual color. It looks like there's a blue plastic film on it.

In those high-res photos you can see the glass between some of the torn sections of plastic film. It looks very nice: pale grayish-blue, very close to the way it appears in the renders.

I've seen mockups of the glass. It's amazing.

Honestly that fact that 1WTC is big and imposing is a good thing. Skinny talls have less of an impact on the skyline. Also, the old twin towers were fatter

If I were to say anything looks like a stoke stack, I would have to say these super skinny towers are more suited to that description. Smoke stacks are usually pretty thin.
